Crozes-Hermitage Cuvée Louis Belle 2014 Tasting notes Persistence and precision are already evident in this wine’s beautiful, deep, brilliant, garnet red. The nose opens, rich and complex. Already it develops intense aromas of fruit liqueurs, cocoa bean, black fruit and sweet spices. As it breathes, if you take a little time to wait, it is enriched with a hint of sweetness and Virginia tobacco, almost peaty. Notes of vanilla, cloves and roast coffee express themselves and reinforce the complexity. On the palate, this wine of character is rich and juicy. The tannins are velvety and provide the necessary support to this wonderful construction. This wine is both smooth and delicate. It will need another 2 to 4 years to open on fuller notes of black fruit jam and sweet spices. Then it will be the ideal accompaniment to duck with olives, guinea fowl or a nice piece of beef. Truffles will be a worthy escort as well. Stuffed poultry and game birds will also be good travelling companions.
